    okay so I'm really scared I've been ordering high quality knock offs from China and reselling them for cash. Ive been doing this for a while now but today I got a letter in the mail saying my package got seized. I want to abandon the package as I don't want it, but I have 2 more packages on the way... I'm scared about those. the value of this seized package was $250

    I'm going to stop ordering but will I be fine since there's still 2 more packages on the way?

    Just wait and see, the other packages might make it through. What country are you in?
    If customs are investigating then they may even deliver the package.
    Try to make sure you don't have any other stock or paperwork at the delivery address.

    If you forfeit the package you won't have any problems. In the past I had 3-4 packages seized and never had a problem. Never got sued or contacted by anyone. Just those letters that you received I received as well. You will probably have to use a different address if you want to continue to order knock off items.

    If the other packages do make it though, maybe you won't have another problem for a while. Wait and see.

    While this may not help you; I had a similar issue with Alibaba-like stuff and opted for a dropshipper. If you google around you may be able to find one.

    Yeah abandon it.

    You could try out

    skybox.net
    I've never used them but that's one that was recommended to me before.

    That guy hasn't been on since May, 2016. The OP hasn't been on since 2015.

    This wasn't a bad thread bump, but I'm going to close the thread anyway.
